    Wow looks good. I doubt it is a LYD edition, as Yonex likes to repaint their high end rackets every year if they are not releasing a new one in that series. (eg. Nanoray Z speed)
    But i'm hoping he does get a signature racket released for him though! :D

    From holding the racket, the Legends edition feels way lighter, almost like a 4U racket even though it says 3UG5. It also feels more flexible imo.

    Agree, whilst i have not spent much time with an ARC11, a friend does uses it and i've had try it before. Its slightly head heavier (but only by slightly). Otherwise its quite similar. ARC10 gives more feedback + very balanced racket.

    It looks like a "spiderman" edition of Arc11

    I wonder if someone can help me. Are acsabers which are produced in 2013/14 any different from Arcsabers produced in 16/17? I could buy myself a cheap genuine 14 modell for 20 bux less than a 16 modell. I would imagine they are the same, but are they?

    they should be same. maybe you will need to change the original grip though.. probably broken down if it is 4 years old.

    The new livery looks good but with a golden logo Yonex is really trying to hard to hype things up. I really like this racket and have been using since it launched. I switched to other racket but eventually came back to this.

    has anyone used grommet strips on their arcsaber? I saw that strips were sold online. Labled as arcsaber 11 grommet strip. Is this a real thing? If so, does it improve the play? it certainly helps with the stringing.

    Wow, I love the color scheme, but don't you think the color theme is a bit too BS12-ish?

    AC416L-1. For me it doesn't do much, reinforced protection at the 4/8 o'clock means more stress at the ever so brittle 2/10 o'clock. Much easier to collapse. Did happen on my reinforced VT80PG's, where the top gave way. Ugh. Decided against them ever since.

    I hope you saw the fine print.... and don't get suckered into it...





    @ucantseeme , I gave you a preview of the picture above and you can't even get the purple/violet right? C'mon man :p
    And you forgot, no funny colored original leather grips other than white/red/black hehehe.

    I've read a few people comment on how they want a bit more power from their Arcsaber 11. Does anyone use the 2U?
    Bought a 3U ARC11 in replacement for my 3U VT70 to play doubles with which I'm loving every bit of except backcourt smashes could do with a little more improvement (and clears... but I usually avoid playing backcourt to backcourt clears in favour for good placement shots which where the ARC11 really shines for me)

    Wonder if the 2U would give me just that extra oomph I'm looking for...
    Any 2U users that could chime in?

    Have you try and add 2.0g of lead tape to 3 and 9 o’clock of the frame?
